As a parent with a student attending San Marcos High School, I recently received a letter from Superintendent Cary Matsuoka regarding the status of hiring a new principal. 

I'm curious if any other parents were notified or asked to be on this committee. I did not receive any information about it so I'm curious what the process for this was. Does anyone know?

Below is the full letter I received in an email:

Dear SMHS Staff and Parents,

We wanted to provide an update on the hiring process for the next principal for San Marcos High School.  As you may know, the position was advertised and posted for four weeks. The advertised position closed on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 and we only had five candidates who applied.  We reopened the application window through May 1, 2018, all with the goal of recruiting a strong candidate pool.  

In the meantime, we created an adhoc advisory committee to serve as a sounding board in regard to the hiring process.  The committee has a combination of teachers and parents who will meet weekly.  We will provide an update on the hiring process in early May.

Sincerely,

Cary Matsuoka
Superintendent

Every High School in the U.S. is having to deal with this online social media threat issue. To caviilarly throw a long standing and well supported administrator under the bus for political expidentcy speaks volumes. No effort to seek solutions as a team here. No wonder the lack of applicants for this position. Go figure.

Current principal Ed Behrens is the best person for the job. He has been doing and is doing a great job. Seems to me that he's being punished because some people don't know how to parent and people with pull used this as opportunity for some politics. Finding a new principal is a complete waste of resources to break something that's not broken. I agree with LOUWHO

They should let the old Principal compete for his old job, since he was let go for political reasons. If he competes and proves he is still the best person for the job, he should be reinstated.
